Still trying to find a holiday gift for the guy or gal that has everything? Nothing says holiday bliss like a Dabbin’ Santa Christmas sweater. Brought to you by rapper 2 Chainz (neck accessories aren’t included) who is using the ugly Christmas sweaters’–finally a gift for the weed head in your life that doesn’t include a dime bag–profits to give to charity.

Specifically, the Def Jam rapper’s T.R.U Foundation, which launched in 2013 in Atlanta to “create life changing moments and help build a positive outcome for our young generation.”

Starting with Deirdre Plater, a disabled veteran and unemployed single mom based in Palmetto, GA.

2 Chainz got wind of Deirdre struggling to make ends meet after having back surgery, and gave her the gift every grown-up wants: free rent for a year. So jellies.

And…

New furniture.

Check out how 2 Chainz surprised Deirdre and her son.

Awww…now I have to DAB my eyes. Get it? Lol…anyway, good look delivering a Christmas miracle, 2 Chainz

Big name stars hit the hardwood in ATL this past weekend for breast cancer awareness. The first annual “Ballin’ for Boobs” event held at Morehouse College, and hosted by Love and Hip Hop: ATL’s Karlie Redd and a local radio station raised ¬†money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Hooping it up were R. Kelly, who put in work as a coach and player, Shawty Lo, Bobby Valentino, Q Parker of R&B group 112, R.L. of R&B group Next, Wingo of R&B  group Jagged Edge, Case and 2 Chainz, who also served as a coach.

Do you think after the game they combined melodies? Just sayin…that’s a lot of R&B singers on the B-ball court, take advantage of it.

But I guess they were too winded from the game to take the mic. Singing trios Bliss and Havok Jones performed for the crowd.

The event reportedly brought out hundreds of ATL-ans, including Momma Dee of L&HHATL, and was the vision of Pamela D. Hogan and Janet Jackson of Boss Chix, an event planning company. More photos below.

Playing to a sold-out crowd of M-U students, the blinged out lyricist is only the second rapper (J. Cole performed in 2012) to hit up the stage for its own version of a SXSW festival; Spring Festival that spotlights innovative student groups on campus.

While the “I’m Different” rapper closed down the year-long festival, he helped bring in cash that will benefit a summer leadership camp on U-M’s campus for at-risk Detroit kids, similar to New York’s fresh air fund.

Nothing like kicking off Spring break with a concert for a cause. And, of course 2 CCCCHHHHAAAAIIIINNNNZZZ!!!

Sorry, couldn’t contain it.
